Totally agree. I have never understood everyone's fascination with 1977. As you said - no extended jamming, similar setlists, etc. I like some of the mid to late 80's stuff better. At least they were stretching out sometimes and mixing up the setlists more, in spite of the other issues they had at the time (drug use, vocal decline, etc.)
Give me a good ol' 73 or 74 show anytime.

But this is what makes the Grateful Dead so great - one man's trash is another mans treasure.
